unlocking NEF file

Chris Autio , Jun 04, 2008; 05:11 p.m.

Sorry I can't find this answer in archives, though I have unlocked a jpg and tiff files. I simply want to trash it to get it off my desktop. How do I unlock NEF files? I can open them up in Photoshop, go to info, but am unable to make any changes to the file. Thank you. Chris

The following program may help you if I understand your issue correctly. http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker

You can`t r click, then pick delete. It then is off the desktop. Eliminate the original file the usual way.

Sorry I have a Mac! ...bummer. Anyway, maybe someone can shed some light on this lightroom problem.

Try this: highlight the file, then choose File/Get info and turn off the locked Check box. Then you should be able to trash the file.

The fastest way is hold down the Option key as you "Empty Trash".
